Lately my pc has been shutting down and I will not be able to boot till I let it sit for 5 minutes or so. How can I check if the cpu maybe overheating or other matters with the computer itself. Thanks ahead of time you guys are very helpful(this maybe the wrong forum to post this..sorry) This happens like every 2 5 days it will do this..

Hi,

Why not download and run the SensorViewPro program under my signature and let us take a look at the temps (both at-rest and under-stress) and the voltages. Be sure to list your specs as requested by Speedster and be sure those fans and the heatsinks are clear of dust. YOu can use a can of compressed air to do that.

Hi dan2020,

First clean the dust out of there, use a can of compressed air to do this. Be careful, don't turn the can on its side as this can cause liquid to come out.

If this don't help then we will get into the thermal paste and recommendations on what to use and how to apply
